Hello, Portland. I find myself unexpectedly in your vicinity for a few days. So, uh, you want to hang out or whatever?
Green Dragon Pub, 6 pm. Let's have a pint together, I'd love to meet you.

What do you have in mind?
In what part of town are you staying?

Oh, I figure just meet up for a drink and maybe a casual bite to eat or something. I'm staying in Portsmouth in north Portland, but I can get around fairly easily.

I'd be up for a bite and a pint this evening.

A couple ideas:
Occidental Brewing
Green Dragon

I know Green Dragon has a patio. Not sure about the other 2.

Later evening is probably best for me and fiercekitten.
Like after 7:00 or 8:00, I think.

I think Hopworks has a few outdoor tables, not as many as Green Dragon. It doesn't seem like Occidental has food, but it is closer to Portsmouth than the other two.

I think Occidental allows you to bring in food, but doesn't offer any.
That being the case, Green Dragon or Hopworks might be better.

Google Maps claims there's quite a few pubs along Lombard St. near N. Portsmouth Ave., but I'm not familiar with the area so I don't know which would be the best choice. A decent pub with food and an outdoor area would be ideal, if this breeze dies down a bit.

On preview: so yeah, other than being in the SW area, Green Dragon would work. And it's a known quantity.

And it's a known quantity.

Although, the quantity of some beers on the list are unknown until you try to order ;)
But generally speaking, they have a great selection, decent food, and a waitstaff that has a tendency to forget to charge you for a beer or 2.

I'm down for the Green Dragon. Are we thinking 7 or 8 pm? And is it the kind of place where we might want to lock down a table early?

Possibly. Not really sure what to expect as far as supply/demand (yes, I'm an Econ major) for outdoor seating.
posted by nickthetourist at 12:43 PM on May 4, 2013

I'll hazard a guess that outdoor seating will be quite popular on a warm sunny Saturday night.
posted by Greg_Ace at 12:55 PM on May 4, 2013

Ok, let's say 6 pm, and I'm sure once we get situated, we'll be there a while.

I snagged one of the few available tables outside. Bald guy, Metafilter shirt.

Running late, be there by 6:30.

All announced people are present. Unannounced people! Come play!

That was fun. And thanks to the "Florida train wreck" it was interesting, too.
posted by nickthetourist at 10:40 PM on May 4, 2013

That was an excellent time. Thank you, nickthetourist, fiercekitten, and Greg_Ace. I will do my level best to provide more than less than 24 hours notice next time,
